Oceanside is one of the few remaining villages on the Oregon coast. By geographic and zoning constraints the level of development is far lower than in many other areas. This gives it a quaint atmosphere that many people enjoy.
Other people may find drawbacks to this quaint-ness: there are no convenience stores, fast food restaurants, or gas stations in Oceanside. Most mobile phone providers do not reach the Oceanside village or beach.
There are two eateries currently operating in Oceanside:
- Roseanna’s Cafe, nearly next door to the Community Club building, serves gourmet lunches and dinners.
- Blue Agate Cafe, kitty-corner from the Club, is open for breakfast and lunch.
The rocks featured in the banner at the top of the page are the Three Arch Rocks National Wildlife Refuge. The Cape Meares Lighthouse and Wildlife Refuge is just north of Oceanside, while the Cape Lookout State Park is not much further to the south.
